UAAP Season 72 Finals: They Got Even, And Then Some

What's there to say? Hats off to UE for the emphatic win.
Warriors forge rubber match

MANILA, Philippines - Dominant in all departments, the University of the East Warriors mocked the odds to forge a winner-take-all UAAP championship showdown.

The Warriors reduced Ateneo into a fumbling bunch and roared to a surprising 88-68 blowout victory, spoiling the Blue Eagles’ bid to sweep the title series in Game 2 of the men’s basketball Finals at the jampacked Araneta Coliseum.

Elmer Espiritu highlighted the rout with a spectacular alley-oop dunk off a Paul Lee assist that silenced the predominantly Ateneo crowd and gave the Warriors a 19-point advantage, 79-66, with four minutes left.

But when Ateneo wins Thursday the Red Warriors can point that Lee-Espiritu alley-oop as the reason. Make 'em pay, Eagles.
